    I'd like people to participate even if they are hardcore 'novices'. If you like you could pick your favourite tracks from other people's long lists and just rank those.

    By the way, this is poll includes Jungle tracks that predate the 1993-1995 of the Jungle poll. So Terminator, for example, is eligible in this poll, because its from 1992.

    - Staccato sample riffs

    - Italo-house piano

    - Mentasm

    So for example this track is very Jungly, but the staccato sample riffs at 1.42 mean that I'll count it as Hardcore:

    Scrap that, you know it when you hear it ("hardcore, you know the score" and all that).

    It would be interesting to see how many 1993 hardcore tracks don't fit this criteria.

    Sentimentality meets brutality.

    re: LFO, I think I agree with Reynolds in awarding 'Frequencies' the award for best electronic album EVS. Sounds so amazingly modern 25 years later. (Just realised that the 25th anniversary was on the 22nd of July this year!)

    can imagine that life is a mystery bit sounding so deep and profound while being off your nut on drugs. 'yeah, it is a mystery' spinning out on it

    Saw this on a jungle ballot, sounds like hardcore to me. I can put it in my hardcore ballot right?
